For the good of the community (and the poster), the OP is here translated into English:

She asks me if I can give situations where you can observe objects accelerating/decelerating as free fall bodies and objects that travel a trajectory path.

I am rather frustrated because I can't answer her question.
Please help me.
Thanks
 
Re: PLEASE help can't answer my little sister's question!!!!!!!!!

I good place to start studying free fall and trajectories is with tennis balls in a field. Have someone throw the ball with different initial forces, and different initial angles and observe the trajectories. The ball follows a parabolic trajectory because the acceleration due to gravity is constant.

Roll a tennis ball off of a ramp into midair. Right when it hits the end, drop another one straight down from equal height. You can do this by hand or set up a neat little contraption to do everything exactly on time.
